Experience Top Gear Supercar Driving Trips around Scotland
For local residents around Edinburgh or the Borders and perfect for the visitor to Scotland, an exciting and innovative style of Car Hire has arrived in town .
Whether you need to rent a car for a day, a week, a touring holiday, for business or pleasure, Arkvendor, based in Edinburgh and Berwickshire, has a prestige collection of modern design classic cars and vehicles.
Unlike the typical high street Car Hire company, (with everyday choice of a Ford Focus, Renault Clio or VW Golf), Arkvendor offers memorable, Top Gear-style motoring adventures.
Especially designed for touring rough countryside terrain and Highland glens, the top supermodel of a vehicle, the Range Rover Evoque 4 x 4 combines a powerful performance from the diesel engine and automatic transmission with a luxurious leather interior.
With five stars for safety and security, it’s described by What Car? as “Stylish, good to drive and with desirability that none of its rivals can match.”
On a recent trip touring Loch Lomond, I had the pleasure of being driven in Arkvendor’s very sleek and fashionable black and gold Evoque. Enjoying the ride, I appreciated the smooth acceleration on the motorway as well as the manoeuvring ability along flooded, mud-splattered roads, due to the automatic six gear paddle shift. Loved the heated seats on a cold winter’s day too!.
Originally launched in 1999 with multi awards for design and engineering, the Audi TT Coupe is seen as the most desirable car for an exhilarating driving experience. The four cylinder engine offers supercar acceleration with sharp steering; for a speedy sports car, it’s economical and reliable, practical yet sophisticated with interior space and comfort.
The petrol head boys on Top Gear are clearly impressed with the Audi TT: “ a bona fide small sports Coupe for literally all seasons …. fast, refined and fantastic to drive” .
Planning a unique driving adventure for a couple of friends, – who could resist taking a classic Caterham out for a leisurely spin?. The Caterham 7, based on the former Lotus 7, is widely regarded as being one of the most thrilling sports cars around. With the wind in your face, this open-top, road legal Race-car has precision steering, racing suspension in its ultra lightweight construction.
“ A Caterham is no ordinary car. It represents the peak of driving involvement, offering a sophisticated package of handling, road holding and ride, maximising your contact with the road and your driving skills.”
Arkvendor also has another cool and classy Retro vehicle which you can rent for a fabulous, fun road trip!.
The sunflower yellow VW Campervan T2 is a five seater, sleeping four people, with all mod cons, hob, grill and cooking utensils, Pop up roof, DVD/CD and Satnav unit. At a campsite, you can hook up to the mains for power.
Renting a Campervan offers the most nostalgic dream vacation in this oh so stylish “Tent on wheels”. The iconic VW Campervan is a beloved symbol of cultural heritage, representing getaway outdoor freedom and traditional family holidays.
